Masseria Bandino

Situated a few mile from the stunning seafront at Otranto

Accommodation

Most of the Masseria’s 20 rooms are located around the internal courtyard on either the ground or first floor and all benefit from a terrace or patio….perfect for that pre-dinner aperitif! Rooms are tastefully furnished in a ‘shabby chic’ style with light colours and wooden parquet floors yet retain a good deal of character and cosiness. Together with complimentary Wi-fi (and throughout the hotel), all rooms enjoy safe, hairdryer, shower, air-conditioning, mini-bar and satellite TV. Family rooms are also available on request.

Living 

Ideal for couples and families alike, a friendly informal atmosphere pervades throughout this charming Masseria….you really are made to feel at home! On entering the farmhouse, which is surrounded by lovely meadows and forests, the welcoming reception area boasts enchanting exposed stonework with vaulted ceilings. This leads both to the cosy breakfast room, serving up a wonderful buffet of fresh Puglian fare each morning, and the property’s internal courtyard – alluring characteristic of an 18th century Salento farmhouse. Towards the back of the property lies a good sized swimming pool with space for relaxing and beyond that the Masseria’s land extends into wooded countryside, perfect for a stroll or some gentle exercise!Superb local cuisine and wines are on offer each evening at the attractive Ristorante Bandino; the Masseria is famed locally for its excellent food and testimony to this lies in the high number of Pugliesi who frequent this delightful eatery. 

For activity lovers mountain bikes are for hire and there is horse riding available at nearby stables as well as scuba diving and sailing out of nearby historic Otranto (all bookable locally). One of the local sandy beaches (5kms) ‘Acqua Chiara’ boasts clear waters and safe bathing with discounted sunbeds and umbrellas for Masseria Bandino guests.

We include an economy hire car with this holiday for greater flexibility and enjoyment to explore this fascinating area which provides a heady mix of history, culture, fine cuisine and excellent beaches.

You can drive here in about 1 hour 10 minutes from Brindisi airport, or around 2 hours 20 minutes from Bari airport.
